So, I was trying to fall asleep last night and what better way than picking up this week's edition of the Economist. Well, the only article that caught my interest was a piece about the Australian dingo and how it was causing a menace in certain areas of that country. What struck me as fascinating was an aside where the author speculated that the dingo was domesticated by the native aborigines and that the dingo formed an integral part of the aborigine family unit - so close that the phrase "three dog night" made reference to a common description of a cold night as in "it's colder than a three dog night." It made me think of how many other common phrases we use frequently but never truly know where they originated. Those deep thoughts were enough to bring me to a slumber as I snuggled close to my Golden Retriever, Yankee, and was thankful that it was just gonna be a one dog night.
